Three people were arrested after police say they assaulted or interfered with officers as they removed four pit bulls from a house.
Police said they got several complaints about pit bulls being loud and mistreated at a house in the 1400 block of Owana on July 8.
An animal control officer determined the dogs needed to be removed from the house. Police said three people who reside at the house objected to the dogs being removed.
The residents “began assaulting and interfering with the officers,” Royal Oak Police Sgt. Mike Frazier said in a statement. “Two suspects were charged with assault and battery on a police officer and the third suspect was arrested for having a misdemeanor warrant.
